Tyler Breeze Says Triple H Gave Him A Heads Up Before WWE NXT Release



Tyler Breeze wasn’t completely surprised when he was let go from his WWE NXT contract in 2021, thanks to Triple H giving him a heads up.

On a recent edition of the “Developmentally Speaking” podcast, Breeze recalled expecting to be cut and Triple H letting him know to be ready. He said,

“At that time, I knew it was probably happening at some point. Actually, I believe, when it finally happened, I’m pretty sure like Hunter [Triple H] already told me that like, ‘Oh, this will probably happen,’ just because I was still on a main roster deal at that point. When it comes down to it, and it comes down to looking at stuff like that, you can’t make that much money in that spot. It really just kind of came down to that.

“So I wasn’t really surprised… I mean you can’t ever really be surprised. When they finally fire you, you can kind of see the writing on the wall here and there. Sometimes there’s some surprises.”

During the podcast, Breeze admitted that he felt burnt out at the time of his WWE release as he had taken very little time off during his eleven years under contract. He said,

“I was a little bit burnt out. I mean, I’ve been going hard… I really only took, I don’t know, maybe a couple days off here and there. I think maybe I took a couple days off to go get married, that was about it. So I’ve been lucky … I’d never really been hurt, so I never really took extended time off. I was booked on everything. I think in 2017 or 2016, I had the most matches in WWE.

“But, I just kind of liked sleeping in my own bed and waking up and making breakfast and not really being in a hurry to go anywhere. Just hanging out with my animals, just enjoying life. A little bit of the reward for the hard work of being on the road for 11 years.”
